W'u Ting Fang Delivers the Memorial-Day Oration at General Grant's
Tomb, and Gives a Scholarly Estimate of the Char
acter of the Soldier-Fresident.
New York. May 30. f5lnce the body of
General Uleses S. Grant has been laid at
rest at Claremont there had never been a
greater throng In upper Riverside Park than
to-day. Memorial services were held at tho
mausoleum this evening and many of the
relatives of the soldier-President were wit
nesses to the tribute paid their honored
dead by grateful countrymen.
Mrs. U. S. Grant. Brigadier General Fred
erick D. Grnnt. still bronzed from field duty
In the Philippines; U. S. Grant HI, who Is
still a student at West Point, and other
members of tho Grant family occupied
seats In tho stand, while Wu Ting Fang.
Chinese MlnlMer to the United States, de
livered the address of the day on the'letson
of the life of the warrior at whose deeds
the world marveled.
In beginning his address Minister Wu ex
plained that he bad met General Grant In
China, during the memorable trip around
the world, and ha'd since had the greatest
admiration for him.
Foremost Soldier of the Age.
"The foremost soldier of his age," said
the silk-robed orator, "Grant was also a
man of peace. During his presidency he
stood like a rock against appealing to the
sword In the settlement of International
disputes. The VIrglnlus difficulty may be
cited as a case In paint. The. whole country,
from Maine to California, was deeply stirred
over this supposed outrage. War seemed
for a time Inevitable. But Grant was not
the man to be hurried Into taking any Ill
considered step. He waited for a full In
vestigation of the facts. It was found that
the VIrglnlus had no legal right to fly the
American flag. Thus was the Incident
amicably closed, which for a time threat
ened to plunge the two countries Into a
useless war. It was all due to Grant's firm
ness of will and ccolness of temper In
meeting a crisis!
Graat'a CreTralasr Glory.
"The successful demonstration of the
practicability of arbitration as a method of
settling International disputes was the
crowning glory of Grant's administration.
Up to that time, when the usual resources
of diplomacy failed, the last resort was
war. The' submission of the so-called Great
Britain to the Geneva tribunal was a mem
orable step toward the improvement of
permanent relations between nations. It
showed that there was another last resort
besides war. It was. Indeed, the putting in
practice of the noble declaration which the
-great soldier made In his flrst letter of ac
ceptance or tne presidential nomination,
'Let us have peace.'
Loved by Chinese Statesmen.

calculated to fire the imagination of the
Chinese. Statesmen and Generals do ot

In the first battle of Bull Run he was

went with the Sixty-Hrst New York to New
Orleans and served through tho Red River
campaign. At the siege of Tort Hudson he
was shot three times In one fight. Two of
the wounds were In tho aide and serious, but
he recovered and took part In a skirmish In

He also recovered from this wound. Six

our favorite sayings. Wo Chinese have
great admiration for men who have risen
by thtir talents from humble beginnings to

Such was Grant. Naturally all China de

"After Grant's death Earl LI gave In
rtructlons to the Chinese Legation at
Washington to bring every year, as is done
this day. an offering of flowers to the Gen
eral's tomb on Memorial Day, as a token
of his enduring friendship. When he was
in this city on his visit to this country he
regarded It as his first duty to make a pil

Is not only lccause he was a wise states
man and President, but also because he de

"If Grant had done his work In China
there Is no doubt that temples would have
been erected to his honor throughout the
Empire. Before his shrine impressive cere
monies would be performed at stated Inter

ment, with the burning of Incense and the
offering of sacrifices. But things are done
differently in this country- It has some
times been said that Republics are ungrate
ful. This grand mausoleum is at least a
standing witness that the people of the
United States are not unmindful of their
obligations to the great leader who con
ducted them through a memorable crisis In
their national life."
Minister Wu'a address was received with
great enthusiasm by the great throng about
the mausoleum.
While the exercises at Grant's tomb were
in progress General Fred D. Grant, accom
panied by his wife, came through the throng
to the platform. He was recognized and

The difficulty arose from the proposal to

There are suggestions that the challenger

Which Is Entitled to the Rif-ht-of-Way
on Kansas City
repuduc srEciAU
Kansas City, Mo., May V. Whether the
United States mall3 or funerals are entitled
to tho right-of-way on Kansas City streets
Is bothering tho Metropolitan Street Rail
way Company. There is a city ordinance '
making It a misdemeanor for a street car to i
interrupt a funeral proceslon. There Is also
a United States law against interfering with J
the distribution or delivery of the malls.
Last Friday a long funeral procession
crossed tho path of one of the mall car on
the Metropolitan line at Independence and
Grand avenues. This car mas carrying mall
from the depot to the post office, and It ,
waited until the funeral cortege had passed
by. Consequently the mall was late at ths
post office.
The post oT.ce complained to the street
railway company, and Major Warner. Unit
ed States District Attorney, was asked what
should be done. Either the United State
law would be violated by those conducting
the funeral, or the city ordinance would be
broken by the street railway company.
The United States law would take pre
cedence." said Major Warner. "If a mall
car comes In contact with a funeral parade
I think those In charge of the car would be
justified in Interrupting the procession. It
would be a delay of only a minute or so,
